Incredible Transparency, Comfort, and Style
Sennheiser's HD 598 is a new take on the way you get closer to your music. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they also provide an impeccable sound quality and unrivaled comfort. Inspired by the most sophisticated interiors from European sport sedans, the HD 598 looks as incredible as it sounds. The high-gloss burl wood accents complement the luxurious padding on the headband and earpads for a bold statement.
"Separation is excellent, and there's a stack of detail available even
at modest volumes. Low-frequencies are broad-beamed and adequately
textured, with a nice positivity to the entry into, and exit from,
individual notes. At the opposite end,
treble sounds shine benevolently. There's plenty of breathing space in
the midrange for vocalists to express themselves, and the HD598s
integrate and organise every element confidently."
-- What HiFi?
With Sennheiser‘s innovative E.A.R. technology, audio is channeled directly into your ears. These headphones also incorporate a special DuoFol diaphragm geometry that minimizes inter-mod distortion while delivering an impressive frequency response range. The rest and response time of the transducer equates to a comfortable, detailed listening experience, while their high-quality leatherette headband and velour ear pads provide outstanding wearing comfort, even over the longest listening sessions.
"We recommend these cans to anyone looking for a pair of headphones with precision sound quality and a wide-open soundstage."
"These cans sound remarkable, perhaps the best we’ve heard under $500."
